MUSKEGON, Mich. - Three children at the center of an Amber Alert Wednesday afternoon have been found safe in Grand Rapids.

Grand Rapids Police say the children -- 16-month-old Jariah Render, 2-year-old Ja-Raun Render, Jr. and 3-year-old Lamir Jamerson -- were found in the 900 block of McReynolds NW.

The Amber Alert was issued Wednesday for the children after a shooting Tuesday night in Muskegon.  The alert was issued because the children were believed to be with a shooting suspect, 22-year-old Jaraun Dequan Render.

Render was not with the children when they were found and is still being sought by police.  He was last seen driving a burgundy, Chevrolet Suburban, without a license plate.

Police say that Render is wanted for the shooting of Linda Jamerson, 19, and Dajuan Edison, 26, Tuesday night at about 8 p.m. in the 1300 block of E. Apple Avenue.

Anyone with information should call Muskegon Police at 231-724-6750 or Silent Observer at 231-722-7463.
